I broil it until the chocolate chips just start to get soft then smush it into the PB. Rice cakes are good like this

Dude, WHAT? Oats in the smoothie! Mind is definitely blown. Does it end up oatmeal-y?

It's even more awesome if you soak the oats first.

I recently discovered coating tofu in cornstarch before stir-frying.... am I the only one who didn't know about this?

Also, for more avocado toast variations: EB, Avocado, and Nooch on sprouted toast. Also Olive oil, Nooch, and salt on popcorn.... or various herbs and spices instead of nooch if you're feeling gourmet.

I was feeling ultra lazy the other night and bought a can of Amy's chili w/ veggies. I twanged it on some baked taters that were smothered with EB and nooch and it was way more awesome than I expected it to be. My little boy gobbled it up.

Okay, so I thought I was being original with my "dry miso soup packet plus veganaise as dip" idea, but I just looked at the package and they suggest that.

Poo.

But, hey, plagiarism is yummy!

Nope! It's AMAAAAAAAAZING. That and almond butter turns a fruit smoothie into a POWER BREAKFAST.


Dude, hemp seeds and spinach. WA-BAM!

I honestly did not know of these Peanut Chews until I went trick-or-treating this year (for the first time in about a decade; yeah, I'm too old). Anyway, this little old lady gave us a couple and for the heck of it, despite there being chocolate, I did my vegan thang and skimmed the ingredients. Mind = blown. I'm buying bags of these from now on.
.


Well, at least when I lived in chicago I never figured out where to get peanut chews, though I think they might be expanding their distributions? Maybe, but at least 4 years ago they were unavailable there. I was quite sad, but I never found them frequently in Ohio either. At least I found they sell them @ Rite Aid here! Question is whether Rite Aids in Asheville sell them now that I'm moving.

ps- Woo Yooper! I'm half yooper myself; grandfather and mother born there, grandma's from Calumet but moved to Marquette as a child I think. Aaaand now I want to make veggie pasties.

I want to know too, but I think I'm probably better off not knowing...

Melt 1/3c cocoa butter and add to one package (mori nu) silken tofu in blender. Add powdered sugar (1/4c or to taste). Add 1-2 tsp vanilla. Add 1 tbsp cornstarch. Blend. Voila! White chocolate mousse.

Substitute melted cocoa butter for 1/2 the amount of oil in baking recipes (all time fave in chocolate chip cookies). You're welcome.

Hm. Maybe I'm just addicted to cocoa butter.


OH!! And make "nut" sorbet... Put 1/2c roughly chopped pistachios (or other nut), 1c HOT (almost boiling) water, little bit of maple syrup to taste (or other sweetener), pinch salt, in blender. Blend for a long asparagus time - until super smooth. Pour into very, shallow baking sheet(s) with a rim around them lined with plastic wrap or parchment paper. Freeze until sorbet consistency (not rock hard, but scoopable - about 45-60 minutes, depending on how cold your freezer is). You can scoop into a bowl or something after it's frozen, but I'm not so fancy and I just eat it out of the baking sheet.

Or with Tabasco! It's my favorite thing to eat when I just don't want to cook.

Amazing. I'm sad it took me so long to try it in the first place.
